I suggest making sure that the master browser is always a server
wherever possible. Under Samba this can be done by tweaking the "local
master", "os level", "domain master" and "prefered master" settings.
If the server is always left on (at least during the lab's hours of
operation) then this message shouldn't occur. It's a limitation of the
way Microsoft decided to do things.
